Long Stemmed Rose {Tutorial}

Detailed Step-by-Step Tutorial Available for Purchase - Just in time for Valentine's Day!

This stunning single long-stemmed red rose is made completely out of cardstock and various Stampin' Up! punches and dies.  Yep, that's right.........cardstock!.....and the Blossom Petals Builder Punch (121808) and the new Hearts Collection Framelits Dies (125599).

Pictures just don't relay how gorgeous these are, or their majestic size!  These roses are 18" long and measure almost 4" across!  They are true long-stemmed beauties!

(I made the valentine to my husband, Keith, in MDS.  I got the idea here). 

Wouldn't you love to make this beauty  for someone special?  Or a whole dozen?! Now you can!  I have put together a detailed tutorial on how make each of these stunning roses.  The tutorial is in three parts.  Each tutorial gives clear step-by-step instructions with tons of gorgeous photos on how to make the roses, stems, calyces, and leaves.   The complete tutorial is 13 pages in length and has 43 photos.  The flowers are not difficult to make, but a lot of photos are required to give complete step-by-step instruction.   It also gives lots of instruction on how to create the subtle effects that really make these flowers look real and come to life.

I have tons of orders for these coming up for Valentines Day from all the guys in my office.  I'm going to be one busy girl!  I even have an order for a full dozen!  Hmmmm.........sounds special.......maybe like a proposal?  I'm charging them a ton, but you can make your own!..............

The complete three part tutorial on how to make this project is available for purchase for only  $5.95
